Call of Cthulhu on Fantasy Grounds, Zoom

Fantasy Grounds


About the adventure

Welcome back, investigators. Now that you have been introduced to the world of the paranormal and survived, it's time for you to begin your assignments in earnest. For your next investigation, we are sending you to the other side of the country to meet with Captain Ulysses Smith, who is convinced that the ship he currently serves on, the Olympic, is cursed. Normally not enough of a reason to send you cross country, but the destruction of both of the Olympic's sister ships, the Titanic and the Britannic, has us all on edge. Discover what the Captain knows, and then join on the Olympic's next journey across the Atlantic (your tickets are paid for, of course). See if this "curse" theory holds water.

How to prepare

If you created a character in the first session and they survived, use their character sheet. Otherwise, have a new character written up and ready to play. We will use Fantasy Grounds for rolls and maps, and Zoom to stay in contact.

Gameplay details

This is the second episode of The Britten Institute case files. If you are a new player, it is recommended you play Case file #001, as it includes an intro to the game Call of Cthulhu. Otherwise, the episodes can be played in any order, or choose one with a theme you enjoy! Call of Cthulhu is a story rich, combat low style RPG, where your main strategy shouldn't necessarily be to win, but to survive your encounters with otherworldly entities. This episode deals with fears of drowning, the deep ocean, and claustrophobia. Not for the faint of heart!
